3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ Hamilton Hall JDW. Light amber pour with a tiny head. The nose is bright west coast hops. Loads of lemon meat, orange peel, earthy coniferous bitterness. Nice and lively. The taste is fresh, vibrant. More lemon and orange. Slightly chalky. Probably the hoppiest JDW beer ever. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, I can’t get over how good this JDW-commissioned beer is. Pretty tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ JDW Inverness 
Amber, slight haze, dense white head, some lacing
Aroma - Big fruity hop aroma, tropical fruits, mango, citrus sweet fruits
Taste of tropical fruits, zesty citrus, grapefruit pith, sweet fruity pale malts, stinging resinous hops, touch of peppery spicyness, soft fruity caramel malt, great moreish flavour
Palate - Medium body, pithy fruity bitter palate, sweet malt background. Finish - pithy grapefruit bitterness, hoppy bitter linger with a clean finish.
Overall - So drinkable and moreish - after the excellent Adnams / Avery collab with the 3.5 - this is even better. One of the best beers in Spoons i’ve had in a long while
